The season as usual will unite talent from the UK and from Barbados in both halves of the show. The Bajan Reporter got a chance to speak with the pair bringing “The Lover” to life, they were taking a quick break from rehearsals when I caught up with them; Howard Antony (Barbadian descended Briton) and Endy McKay (British) who shared some background and spoke of the play…

Howard, known for his stint on UK soap opera Eastenders, and Endy both hinted at what people can expect in the production {CLICK ON FOLLOWING LINK FOR FULL AUDIO};-
